Who is Kriya

Constantly challenging ourselves to come up with cutting edge innovations: that is what we do.


Kriya Materials is a customer-driven technology company, which creates solutions that have a positive impact on the energy efficiency or durability of a multitude of end products. We possess the unique know-how on how to convert the opportunities of nanotechnology into sales-ready products in a wide range of end-market applications.

Nanotechnology offers us a world of infinite possibilities. Infinite possibilities that everyone at Kriya loves to explore. We believe that this passion is the key to our success. At Kriya, we don’t stop at making the most of existing technology. Turning innovative concepts into reality is what we do. That’s why we are constantly looking for ways to push the existing boundaries and to make that what seems impossible, possible.

With an R&D-heavy mindset, a desire for a flawless operational execution and a focus on innovation we are set to make an impact on all the different markets in which we are active. We partner, commit and challenge ourselves to exceed our customers’ expectations. Get in touch and discover how we make what’s good, better…


Kriya’s story started with a group of experienced researchers who had a clear vision on transparent conductive oxides (TCO) and their potential applications. An early acquisition on a state-of-the-art proprietary technology from Philips, then was – and still is – the core of all our developments. This proprietary technology is focused around metal oxide nanotechnology, which since then has, and finds its application in many end products. All in all the roots of our company go back nearly 25 years.


We are convinced that nanotechnology is there to maximize a product’s functionality, make it more durable in various ways, while minimizing valuable production resources.

Nanotechnology will make the impossible possible. We know that through continued passionate work we will find ways to disrupt and improve what has long been the status quo.

We are convinced that great things can be achieved, not just by us, but by co-creating with our customers and contribute to the world surrounding us through sustainable innovations.


We will have a positive impact on societal challenges by improving the energy efficiency and lowering the CO2 footprint of products, processes and materials by utilizing our nanotechnology know-how and experience.


Kriya Materials is a company financed by private investors. Shareholders Limburg Ventures, Particon and LRM have supported the company over the years. In 2017 investors Shift Invest and Chemelot Ventures joined the group of shareholders to support the roll out of a new line of coatings in existing and new markets. In 2018 Henkel Ventures joined as a shareholder to accelerate growth and expand the sales and R&D organization globally.

Interreg project ENEF: New technologies and products

The world population continues to grow and that brings all sorts of challenges in terms of water, food, housing and energy with them. ENEF, an abbrevation for energy efficiency is concerned with the latter challenge. ENEF identifies possible improvements to existing materials, systems and processes and introduces them into the market so that they can serve as an example. It is not about small steps. The selected developments make a radical improvement of existing products and processes. They are game changers that drastically reduce CO2 emissions.

SMEs are the driving force in this project, and Kriya Materials is one of the initiators and proud contributor.

More information on this Interreg project can be found at www.projectenef.eu.

H2020 project: Co-Pilot

Kriya Materials is a SME involved in the H2020 project Co-pilot. For the current activities and a detailed description of our activities under H2020 we would like to refer to the consortium website.

OPZuid, by the fund of regional development, project; NACOSOL

Thanks to the support we received under the OPZuid program by the regional development fund we have also been able to start the development of our multi-functional coating for solar panels, which  results into a higher efficiency operating solar panel in outdoor conditions while saving on operational cost for cleaning.
